Butterfly Doors: 1990 Toyota Sera

I saw a Toyota Sera parked on the street the other day and I started instantly raving to the “normal” person next to me “Hey, that’s a Japanese market Sera, it’s got gull-wing or scissors or butterfly doors and was never sold here…”. The poor unsuspecting family member (or perhaps it was a stranger, I don’t recall precisely) just assumed, with its doors closed, it was one of any 90s era Tercel or Camry or whatever. The ultimate conclusion I made was that ownership of a Sera by yours truly would be strange because I would park and drive it around with the doors in full open mode at all times. Find this 1990 Toyota Sera offered for $15,000 in Hebron, KY via wingbook smorget.
